Manx Line was formed in 1977 and ran in competition with the Steam Packet. The Company used a former Spannish vessel called Monte Castillo. The ship was renamed Manx Viking and sailed from Heysham. Manx Line introduced the first RO/RO service to the Island. Manx Line was taken over by Sealink and in turn Sealink merged with the Steam Packet.
